Hi! I’m new here..donated a kidney to my dear friend Monica in 2016 at Froedtert Hospital in the Milwaukee area. We are of different races and blood types (I’m A, she’s O), yet we’re able to do a direct donation. We are both doing great, and Monica truly looks younger and better than I’ve seen her in our 8 years of friendship.
I also happen to be a dialysis dietitian here in the Milwaukee area. Working with this special patient population is what inspired me to jump in and do this. It feels great to have helped someone get off dialysis.
Monica and I LOVE to tell our story, so that we can help to give inspiration to future donors and hope to future recipients!
